Nice and subtle with just the right amount of tang, used broccoli, beans and asparagus. Terrific!

We loved this thank you Geema. I used a mix of brocolli and asparagus (just coming into season). I had cut the broccoli a bit large, so when i added the liquid, I put a lid over the skillet and allowed the veg to steam for a couple of minutes. Those flavours went right through the veggies-yummmm. Next time though, I'll know to cut my florets a little smaller to make it the completely right way;-)

This recipe produces a tender crisp vegetable that is lightly flavored with ginger and a touch of citrus. I do think that next time, I will cook it just a few minutes in the microwave before proceeding. I agree this would be good with asparagus.
